economy to energy policy, to national security. it's astounding. i remember paul krugman earlier this year described mittomney ha b athoca his approach to the truth. i think on average, all things being equal, that's not an unreasonable thing to say. >> can romney make president obama look like a liar? >> it's going to be very difficult. i think it's fair to say that the president has been tough on mitt romney oflate. grve running aeries oer you mentioned earlier in the show about the 47% ad in particular. but all those ads stand up really well to scrutiny. there's nothing in any of the president's ads that has been plainly untrue. i think all candidates and all politicians are going to try and put their o spin on the facts, buhesiee accurate and honest throughout the campaign. i don't think mitt romney can say the thing. >> it's going to be interesting. that's one of the dynamics of the first debate, how aggressive president obama will be in calling out mitt romneyn how inaccurate. we'll callcu o e ,ll use the word dishonest, about his position. steve benen. good to have you with us.

u.s. economy this year. in pipes, cement, steel, jobs, energy. we need to get the wheels turning. i'm proud of that. making real things... for real. ...that make a real difference. ♪ >>> welcome back to "the ed show." tax fairness is one of mitt romney's biggest problems. i have to tell you no wage earner i have spoken with thinks romney's 13 or 14% rate is fair. let's hear mitt romney's take on it one more time. >> is that fair to the guy who makes $50,000 and paid a higher rate than you? >> it is a low rate and one of the reasons the capital gains tax rate is lower because capital has already been taxed once at the corporate level. >> so you think it is fair? >>, yeah, i think it's the right way to encourage economic growth to get people to invest, start business, put people to work. >> let's turn to analyst richard wolffe and dean baker, co-director for the center for economic and policy research and author of the book "the end of loser liberalism." gentlemen, good to have you with us. richard, mitt romney overpaid to get a 14% tax rate. how is he going to sell that to the middle
